Odisha Assembly adjourned sine die well before the scheduled date:


Bhubaneswar: May 17: Current Assembly session of Odisha Assembly, which began on 26th April ended on 16th May, which was scheduled to conclude on May 20. Speaker of Odisha Assembly Niranjan Pujari adjourned the 2nd phase of Budget session sine die for an indefinite period four days ahead of the schedule. Most of the sitting days of the budget session had gone waste due to uproar in house on issues like chit fund scam and all. The last two days of the session created deadlock in assembly proceedings and no business could be transacted as opposition remained adamant on their demand i.e. a reply from chief minister Naveen Patnaik on Chit Fund Scam and other Issues.

The ruling and opposition parties have started blaming each other for the Assembly being adjourned sine die. Describing it as unfortunate Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said, ‘Second phase of this Budget Session was continuously stalled by the opposition affecting the interests of the people and the state.’ He added, ‘I have also personally taken initiatives to restore normalcy in the house. But the opposition did not co-operate for their narrow political interest at the expense of larger interest of the people of the state.’ Commenting on the attitude of the Opposition, he said, ‘No matter how much hindrances the opposition parties created, my government and BJD has always worked and will continue to work for the people of the state.’ On the other hand, Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra said, ‘The ruling Party BJD did not allow the opposition to speak in the house, apprehending that the government will be exposed due to its involvement in various scams.
